The dance in theory by John Martin( )

Although originally published in 1965, this edition of The Dance in Theory was republished in 1989 as the same text with a new introduction by Jack Anderson. The Dance in Theory reprints the first third of John Martin's seminal 1939 book, Introduction to the Dance. It presents Martin's analysis of the theoretical underpinnings of modern dance, including a discussion of the nature of movement, form and composition, and the basis of style. In clear and simple terms, Martin helps us to understand how dances are made and gives us knowledge to view the dance with the intelligence and open perspective it deserves. The content of The Dance in Theory is divided into three sections: The Nature of Movement; Form and Composition; The Basis of Style

An account of the natives of the Tonga Islands in the South Pacific Ocean : with an original grammar and vocabulary of their language by William Mariner( Book )

3 editions published between 1818 and 1978 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In November 1806, the damaged Port-au-Prince arrived at what Captain Cook had called the Friendly Islands. William Charles Mariner (1791-1853) was among the few crew members spared by the native inhabitants. He lived there for four years. Published in 1818, this two-volume second edition offers an important early insight into Tongan customs and language. As editor John Martin (1789-1869) explains, the structure of a nation's language is vital to the consideration of its history. So successful was the first edition of 1817 - expanded upon here to include 'generally corroborative, and in a few instances somewhat corrective' information from another erstwhile inhabitant - that within months of its publication a French translation appeared; German and American editions soon followed. Volume 2 covers diverse aspects of Tongan society, from its music to notions of the soul, and includes a detailed grammar of the language and 2,000 words of vocabulary

Stevie Ray Vaughan was one of the very few guitarists of the 1980s to join the ranks of the immortals. Stevie's incredible technique enabled him to assimilate the spirit of classic blues and rock, while his fertile imagination allowed him to leave an indelible stamp on that music's history. The video covers a performance at Toronto's El Mocambo in 1983
